State Representative Matt Bliss Earns Endorsement From Fellow Republicans
Former State Rep. Matt Bliss (Pennington) has earned a unanimous endorsement from fellow District 5A Republicans in a convention that was organized electronically due to the restrictions of public gatherings in light of COVID-19.
“I look forward to continuing my work for the people of District 5A, focusing on Northern Minnesota common sense and getting Minnesota back to work,” Bliss said in a statement. “We need to get our economy back in high gear, as it was before this pandemic struck. The good thing is Northern Minnesotans are hardy, self-reliant and eager to get back on the job so we can come back stronger than ever.
“At the same time, people need to know their state Rep. is hard at work on their behalf, ready and eager to help constituents as needed and actively working on solutions in the House. I have a proven record of getting things done in St. Paul and will continue with that work ethic to continue delivering results for our the people of our district,” said Bliss.
Bliss seeks re-election for state representative this November. DFL Representative John Persell (Bemidji) currently holds the District 5A seat, beating Bliss in a close 2018 race.
